Tooth sensors reveal patients' lies

  • A new technology can now reveal patient's lies about eating less or not smoking. The sensors that can be embedded into tooth cavities are built into tiny circuit boards and can recognize jaw motion patterns in order to tell the amount of time a patient spends in chewing, speaking, smoking or drinking. The data can then be transferred into a smartphone.

    The sensors have been successful in trials, according to the National Taiwan University in Taipei. The implants are said to have a 94 percent success rate in guessing jaw motion patterns.
